The Apartment #155


Danes' words were hardly formed before the sky outside darkened. Collectively, they all moved to the window as if forced there by an unseen power or bidden by an unheard call. As they stared upwards, the sky dimmed, darkening progressively from its clear blue, through various shades of purple to a black that was so rich it cast its black tarnish down onto the earth and gave everything it touched a shadow, a solid, tangible shade that held an aura of emptiness or of infinite nothingness. It was a malleable darkness that seemed to foreshadow the end of all things.

    That's a creepy image! And that last line is so ominous I just looked out the window to make sure it wasn't true!
